I live in Washington State and convert acoustic bass guitars into affordable custom long scale baritone guitars in my spare time. This blog is about all things relating to those guitars. And for people that don't have the $1,500 for an Alvarez, $3,000 for a Taylor, or $8,000 for a Santa Cruz... (Click on any of the pictures to enlarge)

Dean EAB Octave/Baritone Guitar
I made this baritone out of a brand new Dean EAB and it is one big guitar in both size and sound. It has a satin finish and passive electronics. It has a nice low action and sounds great. I have this guitar set up with a bass E string and strings 2 – 6 of a set of medium guitar string set and it is tuned E – E, a whole octave below a regular guitar. I will include the strings to also make it a baritone guitar like my other Deans and capable or tuning to A – A or B – B and will set it up that way before shipping if you prefer.
I did this at the request of a perspective customer and it didn't sell so I am stringing it back the same as my other guitars and selling it that way.
